The two novel acyclic diaza alkenynes, clathculins A and B, were isolated from the Indo-Pacific sponge Clathrina aff. reticulum, collected in Sodwana Bay, South Africa, by the Rudi research group at the Tel-Aviv University. They were isolated as an unstable mixture and their structures were reported via hydrogenation of the compounds to the saturated analogs. Our work surrounding these compounds has been toward their synthesis and characterization.
